Got bored so i figured i would make a thread for anyone interested to check out.

I am no mechanic by any means, im actually afraid i wont be able to get it back together.

This is where i will keep a log with any pictures i can get.

Purpose is to clean up the engine but mainly fix some hard to find oil leaks i have.

I plan on selling it once i get it fixed up


Car Info:
